The Gunners were held to a 2-2 draw in the first leg, and they have a lot to do in front of their home fans to secure qualification.

They head into this fixture on the back of a 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League and will hope to continue with their impressive form. An unprecedented Premier League and Europa League double beckons for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta will try to keep no stone unturned to achieve that milestone.

Meanwhile, Sporting are on a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions before they head to north London. However, they have not won on English soil since 2005, which could be a cause for concern. Moreover, Arsenal have kept four clean sheets in their last four Europa League home matches, shutting out Villarreal, PSV Eindhoven, Bodo/Glimt and Zurich in the process.
